West Sussex County Times and Bucks Herald switch formats

Two long-running weekly titles are switching from broadsheet to compact format as part of Johnston Press’s relaunch of its 170 paid-for titles.

150-year-old title the West Sussex County Times makes the switch to a compact format on Thursday 31 May following a long-running consultation with readers.
 
The Bucks Herald also announced its switch to compact after 180 years as a broadsheet in this week’s edition.
 
The changes come as part of the relaunch of almost all Johnston Press’s paid-for titles which will see each of the papers redesigned around one of five templates.
